Many of us find the start of the year difficult for a whole variety of reasons.   As your new radio station for North Yorkshire, YorkMix Radio wants to help.  That’s why, this winter we are aiming to collect a tonne of tins for the food banks in York and Selby.

If you can afford to, when you’re next at the supermarket, buy an extra tin and donated it to our appeal.  We’ll make sure it goes to someone who needs it.  

Food banks help people from all sorts of backgrounds who, for whatever reason, find they can’t afford food.  That might be as simple as an unexpected bill such as a broken boiler needing replacing. Those in need of help receive a food bank voucher for an accredited organisation such as social services or a school, who can help ensure plans are in place to help food bank users.

Donating to our appeal is easy, you can drop off your donation at one of our collection points listed below, and if you would like to organise your own collection point please let us know so that we can add you to our list.
